ABSENTEE VOTING IN MICHIGAN
An important reminder (especially after witnessing those very long voter lines in other states’ primaries!), that thanks to the passage of Promote the Vote in 2018, Michigan now has “no-reason Absentee Voting”.So should you prefer to vote in the comfort of your own home, you can request an absentee ballot without needing a reason. Then you may either mail it in or drop it off with your local clerk.
Go to Michigan.gov/sos to request your absentee ballot. Also, please note that you will be given the option to make this request permanently or just for the next upcoming election.
